♦ Ceramic guides on the Shakespeare slingshot travel rods make these rods not only suitable for mono fishing lines but also braid lines.
♦ Shaped EVA rod grips are provided for extra comfort
♦ Travel rod tube case is provided to give you protection when travelling or storing your Shakespeare Slingshot travel rod in your suitcase or vehicle.

Let’s face it, at times we can all be a bit silly and high stick our rods, be a bit silly in other ways or incorrectly try and de-snag a lure or a hook causing the graphite rod to break. So the guy’s at Shakespeare thought it would be a great idea to include a spare tip section in case this event takes place, you can be back on the water fishing in no time. Please note: (the rod comes with warranty but if you break your first tip section this is not covered - The spare tip has already been included if you do accidentally break the initial tip section).
♦ Handy Fishing reel holder included so you no longer need to take your reel off the rod before you store.
